Close

Despite bile rising, I made it inside the monument store and tried my best to order Christi's grave marker. I'm "close" - just a few things they are checking on for me. I really didn't want to have to ever go back in there again, but I will.

The gentleman told me I was in a different state of mind than when I was there before. (Thank you, but I didn't exactly need that reminder; I remembered myself and my behavior quite well without that comment.) He also apologized for not being able to get me a price quote for a few days. I responded, "No problem. It doesn't appear that I'm in any kind of rush now, does it? I've put this off for four years and two months, what's a few more days?!" At least I had him laughing at that one.

Then back in the car I knew I was going to get sick. I pulled over and talked with Shayne, telling him my stomach was a mess. He so kindly told me I was so brave and it must have been so hard.

Slightly OT, but did you know there's a photo of Shayla on the front page of Tiffin Middle School's website?

I've been thinking of you guys (and praying for you too) and can relate to the nausea that you feel with the monument. I just saw Kayla's stone (not engraved yet) yesterday and it is so beautiful but I sure do wish it was someone else's. So on we go, thankfully having some joy, along with our tears. God is sufficient for this too.
With Love and Prayers,
